Sounds normal: Sounds like a normal cbc. Wbc of 7.3 is in normal range, neither too high nor too low. The neut, lym., eos., mono., and baso are the 5 types of wbc's and the numbers indicate the percentage of each of the 7.3 (actually 7300) . The percentages show a normal distribution. Platelets help your blood to clot, and the number is normal. Finally are the rbc's, and the numbers for them are normal.
